Growing Grass

Today when my students came into class they were VERY interested in what I was doing. Our mornings are normally very routine. Me at the door saying hello and checking in with the kids while they do their morning work. this morning, all was the same except for one thing....Mrs. Bee was at a table with dirt and cups.


Cue children who were SO confused!

You see, it's time for us to plant our own grass! If you know me personally, you know that I LOVE to work in my garden. Spring is so fun for me because I get to watch my yard turn from a dormant yucky winter mess to a beautiful green , ok kind of greenish yellow (work in progress) with lots of flowers blooming.

In our classroom we get to see the same thing. We each get a cup of dirt and grass seed and by caring for it each day we get to watch it grow and eventually take it home. We write about the changes we are seeing and get to learn about how each seed grows at a different rate, even when they come from the same mixture.

It is a great reminder to the class myself that we are all growing still and some faster than others. Planting seeds and watching them grow is just what I needed right now!

Now all we need is a little bit of sunshine to speed up the process! ;) C'mon, dreary Oregon weather! Best Blogger Tips
